It's Not Easy Being Pink Blog Hop!

Welcome to the My Pink Stamper's retiring design team's blog hop. We're taking this time to thank Robyn for the wonderful opportunity of being part of her first design team. If you've arrived here from Emma's blog, you're doing fine. If you just wandered into the blog hop, here's a list of everyone participating ... I don't want you to miss out on anything.

I'm very happy to be part of this blog hop. Because of my association with Robyn, I've had lots of 'firsts' over the last four months: my first time as a Design Team member, filmed my first video, made my first scrapbook layout, and now, participating in my first blog hop. Thanks, Robyn, it's been a fun ride.

For my 'Thank You' gift to Robyn, I decided to make  an altered box. I chose this project for a couple of reasons. One, I found a special little gift and I thought it would be fun to put it in a decorated box that she can keep and use as a memory box. Two, the project I submitted for her Design Team call was my Altered Baby Gift Box and I thought this would a fitting way to end.

So here are the details on my project: It's a 10" x 10" square paper mache box ... about 5" deep. I painted the inside white, the base pale pink, and the lid bright pink using acrylic paints. The printed papers and cardstock are from Stampin' Up. The flower was cut at 6.5" using the Cindy Loo cartridge.

I used the Lyrical Letters cartridge and my Gypsy to cut the 'My Pink' ...

and 'Memories' is from the Graphically Speaking cartridge.
                                                                                                                          To complete the box, I added a 'skirt' to the lid using a Martha Stewart border punch and finished it with a little satin ribbon.

Now, on to the fun stuff. This is what I'm offering for my blog candy:

There's a K & Company 'Black & Ivory Fusion' paper pack, 10 sheets of cardstock, 4 rolls of ribbon, some pearl trim and an Inkadinkado clear stamp set called ' Circles and Dots'.

All you need to do to be entered for a chance to win is leave a comment and a way to contact you (I'll ship to anywhere in the world!). How easy is that? I'll keep entries open until midnight CST on Sunday, July 25th and post the winner on Monday morning. So, don't be shy ... let me know what you think of my project.

Thanks for visiting! Now, hop on over to see the awesome project Karla has to show you.
